When Ali came to me with this project, I knew this was it! It's a high octane, its action-packed, it's thrilling, it's intense, created especially for a digital-first audience. Ali is a true master when it comes to this style of films, and it's been very enriching for me to partner with him on this. We really love what we have created together and are bloody excited to see the audience reaction now."Ali Abbas Zafar shared his journey of making the film and said, "We see a lot of dark crime thrillers in the West, but hardly any in India that are made at that level and intensity. Bloody Daddy breaks all stereotypes right from Shahid's transformation into a 'killing machine' to being one of the first direct-to-OTT films to be created at this grand a scale! Bloody Daddy is a hard-hitting out-and-out dark action thriller, that promises raw and real action."Earlier in April, Jio Studios announced their upcoming lineup of films and web series at a grand event in Mumbai.
At the event, Shahid shared his experience of working with director Ali Abbas Zafar and said, "It was a lot of fun. I had a great time doing an action film, I really enjoyed working with Ali. He understands the genre very well. The dilemma now is that if you're doing something of this scale, on OTT, what do you do on the big screen? So we have to figure that out, it has been a blast."The Kabir Singh actor also revealed that his dancing experience helped him understand action choreography really fast.
He said, "There's a lot of choreography involved with dance, and because I started dancing at the age of 15, I can memorize things really fast, that helped us. When we did the film, unfortunately, due to COVID we had a lot of issues. The action directors were not from here, some of them were from London, some came from Hollywood, and they are used to a lot of rehearsals. And they came in and they thought that it is going to be a disaster. But because I have done a lot of dancing I could pick it up really fast."Meanwhile, Shahid was last seen in the web series 'Farzi' alongside Kay Kay Menon and Vijay Sethupathi. Helmed by the director duo Raj and DK, the series streamed on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video and received massive responses from the fans.
